Bill, how long after your hearing did you get the official letter? I was told at the end of my hearing so I have a jump on getting all the info (btw it is my current hubby not ex who needs to get me income info but his work can be as bad as dealing with the ex).
Actually, I never had a hearing. The alj reviewed my application and approved it without reservation. I got the official notice about
2 1/2 weeks after filing. Unusual and possibly my lawyer had something to do with it but he would never explain. The only thing he did say was that judges have "quotas" and they often took obvious cases and just approved them. Mine was one of those.
Sorry about the slip. Blame it on prednisone.
By law, SSD will give you the money within 60 days. If my bank had not screwed up the transaction I would have had it in about 6 weeks.
